Psychology and Social Care: Designed as an introduction to psychology for social professionals, this comprehensive textbook should be of use to both students and practitioners. It identifies central developments in psychology which underlie current patterns of need in the social care sectors. The areas covered relate to the knowledge, skills and values defined by CCETSW (Central Council for the Education and Training of Social Workers), and include: the wider pyschological context of social care work - organizational and multicultural settings; work with clients - working with groups, assessing risk, and working with prejudice and discrimination; children and young people - separation, child abuse and neglect, physical and learning disability, and adolescence and society; and specific issues - mental health, addiction, HIV infection, dementia, and criminality and bereavement.
